How to increase your existing Department of Veterans Affairs Disabled Veterans Benefits ratings.

Veterans Clinical Psychologist
Veterans Law Attorney

Proceed With Caution

Any time we ask VA to open our file to make any adjustment, we open ourselves up to a complete review of all ratings.  Many veterans get an unpleasant surprise when they discover that their request for an increase leads to a proposal to decrease a rating. You have an absolute right to be rated appropriately for each disabling condition you may have incurred during your honorable military service. If you feel that your rating is not correct for your condition, by all means seek an increase. Before you do...be sure that you can't lose. Check your current condition's symptoms against the standards you find in The Schedule For Rating Disabilities. Match your physical or mental health status to the ones you find there. If you are confident that you can prove your entitlement to a higher rating, go for it.

If not, sometimes sleeping dogs are best left to just lie there.

Do It Yourself

You Do NOT Need A Representative


If you have an existing rating and you believe that the rated condition is worse than it was when it was rated or if you believe that your rating is just too low, you must formally file a claim to increase the rating.


Talking with your doctor or other veterans won't get the process started.

You have to submit the forms.


* Determine exactly what your current ratings are before you proceed.


Dig out those original award letters so that you know exactly what sort of benefits and ratings you

have. Don't just guess at it, get the facts. You may need to check your records at the eBenefits site.


* Look at the ratings table for your existing benefit.


The Schedule For Rating Disabilities is your guide to what you may be eligible for. You may

learn that your current rating is already at the maximum or that you're current

rating is seriously deficient. You have to research it to know.


* Gather your evidence and records to support the increase. ​If there are civilian medical records,

you have to gather those for yourself. Do not rely on VA to obtain your civilian records.


* Consider having an IMO completed. The IMO is the most efficient way to

provide evidence in support of your claim.


* It's time to file the claim. ​Use VA Form 21-526EZ 

Be as precise as you can to describe just what it is that you want. 

Provide supporting evidence.


* Congratulations! You're done.​​

You should consider an IME or an IMO
An Independent Medical Examination or an Independent Medical Opinion

will often make the difference when the details of your claim aren't clear.
The physician who conducts such an exam is a neutral

observer and an expert in disability medicine.
